How do you force citrix clients to behave?

ctxapp13Wondering why alt and tab is hit and miss in your citrix session? Can’t seem to figure out why it windows key and D isn’t passing through? You aren’t the first to have this problem and certainly wont be the last.

Despite what you set in the client options, on the application settings or even the web interface / PNAgent options, sometimes these settingsĀ just will not work.

If frustration is getting the best of you, setting the below in the default.ica file on the web interface or PNAgent will force the ICA client to behave itself, despite application or client settings.

The default.ica file can be found in %systemdrive%\Inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\%sitename%\conf where sitename is the name of the site (typically XenApp/PNAgent etc).

The following entries can be added to the bottom of their prospective heading, I’ve retained the heading for each entry for ease of use:

Force keyboard mapping to the citrix session:

[WFClient]
TransparentKeyPassthrough=Remote

Force the Ica client to ignore citrix seamless settings:

[Application]
TWIMode=Off
ScreenPercent=100

A full list of ica file options can be found here.
